Winter is almost at its end, and we couldn’t be more excited! To celebrate the changing of the seasons, we have put together a list of six of our favorite things about taking a spring vacation in the Smoky Mountains:
1. Hiking Opportunities
The spring is the perfect time of year to enjoy one of the wonderful hikes in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park! The snow of the winter has melted away and the heat of the summer has not yet arrived, resulting in ideal hiking conditions. In addition, the gorgeous spring wildflowers have started to bloom, adding to the beautiful scenery.
2. Spring Events
Gatlinburg is packed with special events to celebrate the arrival of spring! Bring the entire family out for Smoky Mountain traditions such as the Great Smoky Easter Arts & Craft Show, Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage, and more!
3. Outdoor Adventures
The cabins from Alpine Chalet Rentals are just minutes from the many outdoor adventures in the Gatlinburg area! Choose from exciting activities such as ziplining, horseback riding, mountain bike riding, and whitewater rafting.
4. Scenic Drives
Take a scenic drive around Gatlinburg and the surrounding area to check out some of the region’s beautiful blooming flowers and historic structures. Some of the best drives in the area include the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, Cades Cove Loop, and Newfound Gap Road.
5. Amusement Parks and Attractions
Spring is the best time to visit some of East Tennessee’s highly rated amusement parks and attractions! Check out Dollywood as they celebrate popular spring festivals, including the Festival of Nations and Barbeque & Bluegrass.
